Enough-IF

There’s an expression that says, “a picture is worth a thousand words.

That’s what my image is trying to convey.

Enough, already!

May you have the peace and strength to do all that you want to do. Happy week!

  3. When you stop and think about it, it is a heavy burden to bear – just like your illustration shows. Thanks for your comment.

  18. Great work and so true, good illustration is all about what the image can suggest to the viewer, your use of the ‘weight of the world’ is so appropriate here.

    Comment by Bee — July 20, 2008 @ 5:02 pm

  19. wow, solemn and strong image. I like how you’ve kept the background clean- it really emphasizes the figure and globe.

    Comment by Monica Josephson — July 20, 2008 @ 6:19 pm

  20. Great take on the topic Indigene! Thought provoking indeed. And in the face of all those troubles, I would say all we need is Love.

    I got that from some rock band in the ’60s. The Beagles, or something like that.

    Comment by Bobo Cat — July 21, 2008 @ 12:36 am

  25. tsk yeah enough already.. the world is starting to crumble and i just cant imagine how it would be like 20 years from now. gee even 10 years from now is unpredictable!

    some people tend to run away from it all.. coz there is nothing much one can do.. thats what you call “life”..

    Comment by atomicvelvetsigh — July 21, 2008 @ 2:04 am

  26. This is different to your usual style, but very graphic and effective and it evokes a strong response in people. It is sad too.

    Comment by Shannon Melville — July 21, 2008 @ 4:51 am

  27. Quite a serious take on the enough theme. Well done. :)
    Thanks for stopping by mine also…our illo’s are at opposite ends for sure!

  32. Art you just don’t look at, but that you think about…that’s the very best in my book and that’s what you’ve done here, bravo!

    Comment by Shani — July 22, 2008 @ 6:05 am

  33. Wow, very profound and powerful on many levels! Wonderful!

    Comment by Debbie Egizio — July 22, 2008 @ 11:13 am

  34. The question is, how much can we make a difference? How much or how little is enough ? And where do we start ? Do all great things start within ? Sorry, didn’t want to be so philosophical.
    Powerful topic, many questions! [Thanks for visiting my blog!]

    Comment by Suana — July 22, 2008 @ 4:21 pm

  35. what you wrote as a comment to my if contribution i could just as well repeat for yours – i guess yours shows the more ecological side of “enough”? it’s different from what i have seen from you and i must say i like the intensity …

  47. A heavy burden indeed. The figure’s posture really conveys the weight.
